Popular Bollywood rapper, Yo Yo Honey Singh has revealed the reasons why he had been absent from the spotlight over the past 18 months.

According to an interview with Times Of India, Singh said that admitted that he was scared suffering from bipolar and battling an alcohol addiction. He said, “I must confess that I was bipolar and an alcoholic, which aggravated the condition.”

“It was scary. One year had passed and I wasn’t responding to medicines, until a fourth doctor from Delhi treated me. At one point, I thought I would live in this darkness forever. I had cut myself off from everyone. I didn’t come out of my room, forget stepping out of the house. I had a beard and I didn’t get a haircut for months. For someone who has performed in front of a crowd of 20,000, I was scared of facing 4-5 people. That’s what bipolar disorder does to you.”

Singh is currently in the midst of promotions for his debut film ‘Zorawar’ out in May.
